200 patients in Manila hospital get assistance from Cayetano’s medical caravan
MANILA, Philippines — A total of 200 patients of San Lazaro Hospital (SLH) in Manila were given some P1 million worth of medical assistance through a medical caravan set up by the team of Senator Alan Cayetano.
Cayetano on Friday said his Tulong-Medikal team’s medical assistance desk in SLH on Wednesday helped patients who are mostly suffering from pneumonia, tuberculosis, hypertension, and animal bites, among others.
“The medical caravan was able to provide P1 million worth of medical assistance to the patients, which included payments for hospital bills, laboratory and medical procedure fees, medicines, and vaccines,” the legislator said in a statement.
He also noted that his Tulong-Medikal team had been providing medical assistance to patients in various hospitals nationwide since 2022. – Denver Godezano, trainee
